Two Superintendents Awarded BCA Supervisor Award

Fetters Construction nominated two superintendents for BCA Supervisor awards. Lynn Lehrman & Brian Schemahorn were awarded with this honorary award from the Builders Contractors Association. The awards were presented at the BCA Spring Membership Dinner & Awards Banquet in April.

Lynn was hired on as a Superintendent with the company in May 1995. He has done an outstanding job in his nearly 20 years at Fetters Construction and has successfully ran and completed all of the jobs he was assigned to. We are confident we will continue to see productive work from Lynn.

Brian started as a Carpenter with Fetters Construction in June 2008 and was quickly promoted to Superintendent a few months later. In his 7 years as a Superintendent with the company, Brian has ran small to large jobs and was more than capable to start and finish each one. We are very pleased with the work Brian has done and the drive he has to continue putting out that work.
